Hair is different things to people. For some, but it is just there to keep our heads warm. For others, and it defines a face, or is an assessory in which to style. Some use it to hide a balding head, bad skin or a shy personality.
Whatever hair means to you, it can be a shock to change to a dramatic new style in one day. That is what I did. One day it was tumbling over my shoulders, the next day, it was very short.

I received a few positive comments from other women whose hair was very short. There are not many of us around.

Good things about really short hair:
– you can use up all the rubbish shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom
– no hair in your face when the wind blows
– no strands of hair on the carpet, your breakfast, on your clothes etc.
– you don’t need to hunt for those pesky hair ties
– you get to know your hair dresser well as you return for maintenance cuts every 6-8 weeks
– save money on hair product
– save time on styling
– no long strands of hair clogging up the plug holes
– save money on colour

And so I take my hat off to the virtues of very short hair. Unless it is very cold….and then I put that hat back on again…

  • I tried it a bit shorter and then went back to long!


  • I love my short hair – especially the ‘no hair in your face when the wind blows, lol. Still use product, still style daily and still get hair strands all over the bathroom basin though :/


  • very short hair


  • I’ll grow my hair for a while and then go super short. A change is often as good as a holiday!


  • Yeah, but it just doesn’t suit everyone looks-wise.
